Human stem cell treatment restores motor function in paralyzed rats

...gnificantly improved motor function, measured by a suppression of spastic movements and improved muscle tone, was shown in 40 to 50 percent of the animals tested. A post-mortem study of those animals showed a robust maturation of neurons and an increase in the expression of inhibitory neurotransmitters in the s...

Targeting sugar on blood vessels may inhibit cancer growth

...ster said. "Altering this binding would allow for suppression of a broader array of the tumor ‘fuels?for angiogenesis, without a major effect on normal vascular function." The researchers hope to develop novel therapies by inhibiting endothelial heparan sulfate in the tumor environment. An example would be ...

LIAI scientists make important finding on cytomegalovirus transmission

St. Jude announces breakthrough in eye cancer treatment

... control of infections caused by treatment-related suppression of the immune system. However, most of the 5,000 children worldwide who are found to have retinoblastoma live primarily in countries with limited resources and have restricted access to medical treatment, according to Carlos Rodriguez-Galindo, M.D., ...

Peering into the shadow world of RNA

...he genome’s integrity is critical.? One of these suppression mechanisms involves short interfering RNA, or siRNA, a form of non-coding RNA that specifically targets and inactivates the stretch of DNA from which it originated. In the case of transposons, this would effectively limit their ability to act, thus p...

Rearing an army to save wheat

...arasitic wasps are part of the naturally occurring suppression of wheat stem sawfly that varies greatly from field to field throughout Montana. The wasps produce two generations of offspring a year, compared to only one for the wheat stem sawfly. A number of Montana counties now have established populations o...

'Erectile dysfunction' drugs heighten natural anti-cancer activity

...ide synthase -- which are key to triggering immune suppression via MDSCs. Borrello’s team found that the arginase enzyme, which metabolizes a dietary supplement called L-arginine, also contributes to dampening the immune system through MDSCs much like nitric oxide, and its production can be reversed by sildenaf...

Regulating the nuclear architecture of the cell

...y identified in Drosophila as having a role in the suppression of gene expression, known as suppressors of variegation, were named Su(vars). The gene family known as Su(var)3-9 codes for proteins that chemically modify certain histones in the nucleosomes. Su(var)3-9 proteins attach methyl groups to the histo...

Novel regulatory mechanism identified for key tumor suppressor p53

...nostic marker for cancer." Responsible for tumor suppression throughout the body, the p53 protein has been found to be mutated and dysfunctional in more than half of human cancers. When working properly, p53 acts by binding to DNA to activate genes that direct cells with damaged DNA to cease dividing until the...
